I work in restaurants. Mostly I've been in kitchens as a result I make friends nervous when they make dinner. Now I work in the front of the house, because I like money and developed a distaste for thankless back breaking labor. I drank my fill of it first.
I grew up in oakland and as a result I am always conscious about things that may get stolen.
Sometimes books put me into the same state that people get into on cocaine, where I blow off my friends because I just want to read one more chapter, and one more and one more, and this will go on for hours.
I used to go to boxing classes many hours a week and it left me with a certain jumpy anxiety that someone was going to hit me and make math way harder for the rest of my life.
After many years pursuing different creative ambitions I'm going with music. This is what I'm devoting the bulk of my time, thought and energy to these days. I always wanted to be a poet, but I had to learn some open chords so anyone would listen to my grim little stories. I'm finally not bitter about it anymore.
I read philosophy, but selectively and have the decency not to talk about it. I'm less into people with complicated overarching theories than people with smart pragmatic things to say.
I'm most interested in stories ultimately
Since getting on antidepressants I have discovered that other people often have both positive feelings for me and consider me attractive. Lexapro is my shit.
Aimed Disclosure: strap ons are my thing
I am thinking of leaving Oakland and the U.S. generally. Want to talk more about this?
My returns on them were shit. I'm trading them out for:
And ten years from now i'm going to see how the decades compare.
The Cohen Brothers are geniuses; My favorite David Lynch movie is Wild at Heart; John Waters is the most joyful living film maker.
The Wire; Bob's Burgers; Rick and Morty; Archer;
The Fall, Magnetic fields, Talib Kweli, Gang of Four, Xiu Xiu, Elvis Costello, R. L. Burnside, Television, Ghostface Killah, New York Dolls. . . .As I'm writing music I find myself listening to other people's less and less. I do not like this. Make me listen to music when we hang out and tell me why it's good.
Coffee is without a doubt the most important meal of the day. This may contribute to my forgetfulness of other less important meals.
that is all
You want to put me on to good music. Give me some notes on some songs.
You want to give me a record deal. Or have advice for a clueless idiot like me. Seriously, I need the help.
You have put your brain back together and have good concise notes to share.
You recognize how much both mental health and class are largely unacknowledged privileges.
You love aristotle.
